University of Glasgow

The University of Glasgow is internationally renowned for research excellence in human and veterinary diseases of prime importance to Africa, with particular strengths in vector-borne disease including malaria, trypanosomiasis, and schistosomiasis.  World-class research facilities for study of tropical diseases include facilities for parasite culture and state-of-the-art secure insectary facilities where two of the most important African malaria vectors are maintained and available for infection studies with human parasites. Expertise in molecular aspects of malaria is uniquely matched by substantial expertise in the ecology, genetics, vectorial capacity and population biology of African malaria vectors; which is supported both by field and semi-field studies in collaboration with African institutions, and expertise in quantitative methods relevant to infectious disease epidemiology including mathematical modelling, experimental design, cutting-edge statistical methods and Geographical Information Systems.
